The Telenor Microfinance Bank says it has been scammed for around NOK 30 million, or around PKR 514 million. The bank has identified 14 people, 12 of whom are local bank employees, and two of whom are external loan agents.
The police has reported that in order to scam the bank, fake borrowers along-with false and incomplete loan applications were made. It is to be suspected that there have been individuals who must have cooperated in approving and granting these loan applications.
